Uma Subramaniam (she/her)
Uma’s early experiences with yoga started at the age of 10 with her father, and strictly adhered to traditional yogic principles that included practicing before sunrise on an empty stomach. An Arts graduate with a specialization in English Literature, she later went on to pursue an associate degree in International Business. She worked as an Internal Auditor for one of the top banks in the US and lived in the US for over a decade. When she moved back to India in 2008, she turned back to yoga for personal practice and soon settled to teach. She has a Master’s Degree in Yogic Sciences, and a Yoga Alliance Registered ERYT500 Teacher, RCYT(Children’s Yoga) and RPYT(Prenatal Yoga) certified teacher from the Yoga Academy.
Uma designs her classes to work slowly into classical practices beginning with awareness to spine, breath and the mind space. “I like my students to experience transformation with even a simple 30 minute practice”. She considers herself still a student, a teacher and therapist, a believer in yoga, naturopathy, ayurveda and natural, holistic and wholesome treatment of the human body and mind. Her happiness and satisfaction lies in her students improving steadily and in having strengthened their interest and belief in yoga, and holistic treatment of their body and mind. She is happiest when she is also able to encourage them to inculcate this new-found way of living among their family and friends.
With experiential knowledge of different schools of yoga (Sivananda, Satyananda, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Yin and hot yoga), and having watched the yoga industry bloom around the world and particularly in Bangalore, Uma helps lead your way to the many options and offerings yoga has for the discerning traveler.
